Bone and muscle pains along with upper abdomen(lower rib cage)

Hi all. First of all this is a great site. Thanks to all for sharing such a knowledge and experiences. I am 26 yrs old male very active and workout 5 days a week. I lift weights and am in really good shape. All of a sudden since last September, I feel dizzy, persistent headaches, neck pain, jaw pain. My quality of life has gone down. I was referred to neurologist and was diagnosed as migraine. I do not think so but they ordered MRI, CT scan to rule out MS.The results were negative and then the migraine medicines sis not help too.  I can hear heart palpitations in my head and stomach.You can see the heart palpitations by placing mobile phone on my stomach. Doctors diagnosed it as high blood pressure. I was on medication. I did not believe it and bought a machine to check and kept a note of the reading for 2 months. I do not have BP at all. Then they have hook up a heart monitor for 1 month. They said that my heart rate is only 48 per minute. After 30 days they say everything is fine. I believe it is due to my cardio workout 5 days a week. Then started my knee pains. Then my shoulder. It has become so bad that I cannot raise my arm after certain height. Then my rib cage at certain points. My doctor say it is just inflammation. Then started acid reflex. They have done endoscopy, ultrasound, X-ray for knees. Now my lower back, elbows, tendons started paining. My doctor says that I have fibromyalgia. I did not believe it either. They also say that I have TMJ for jaw pain. I think this is all crap as I am so active and healthy and how all of a sudden I get so many diseases. I asked my doctor for Vit D test after looking over internet for bone and muscle pains and she said that my calcium is 10 mg/dl and I do not need Vit D test. After I insisting she has ordered for it and the result is 7 ng/ml. I am on 50000IU pill a week. She says that Vit D has nothing to do with these symptoms. My head aches got much better and dizziness too. neck pain is Okay. My shoulder, knee and upper ab still hurts. Just after 1 month of dosage I got it rechecked and the value is 48  ng/ml. I am drinking almost 900 ml - 1 liter of milk every day too (thanks I can tolerate dairy). But the value got up so much in 3 weeks for me where as others say it took 3-4 months? Do you think the tests were right? Also, do you think these have something to do with vit D def? Do I need to get any other tests done? I got my parathyroid and thyroid and they look okay. PTH came about 50 pg/ml. TSh came out 1.07 uiU/ml. My calcium came down by .2 points and is 9.8 mg/Dl when my vit D came up to 48 from 7 in these 3 weeks. Please suggest if I need to get any other tests done. I am planning on changing my PCP.

a lot of your symptoms sound like mine. i started getting ill last Nov with flu like symptoms without the temp! my joints hurt, i had eye pain with redness, i was referred to rheumatologist who did blood test and found i had mycoplasma pneumonia he said my symptoms should eventually settle. well my joint pains did but every 2 -3 weeks i would get the symptoms again with chills, loose motion feeling nauseous.  now i have the added problems of numbness in hand upon walking, sometimes the side of my head would be numb. i also have a tingling feeling when i need to go for a number 2!  i have been referred to a neurologist who i saw on Tues and she does not think i have MS but has ordered a MRI appointment.  

Maybe you can ask you Dr to check for Mycoplasma pneumonia?  my rheumatologist said this could cause these types of symptoms.

sorry i am not much help just trying to find answers like you.  

oh yes a very important point is that i insisted on an vit D test which came out deficient 21ng.

I am sorry about it...I consulted neurologist to confirm it not as MS. Since they have already had my MRI, he has ordered a visual evoke test and it came as negative.So, he confirmed it NOT as MS, which is a great relief. MY knees and bones still hurt but my dizziness and numbness came down. You should definitely try the Vit D supplement..It will help with muscle weakness and hopefully with bone pain..My muscle weakness is much better than before a month but knee and  bone pain persisting.

Hi All,

After my first dosage of 10 weeks,  I feel much better. No more heart palpation in my head, no headaches, no jaw pain, no shoulder pain. I still have my back muscles tingling and acid reflux got little better. I still have tendons pain but over all it is a very good improvement. I am on 2000 IU pills once every other day. My knees hurt if I run on thread-mill but cycling is perfectly fine.

Most importantly, I am feeling better psychologically. No more depression or sadness as before. no tiredness.....still the rib hurts and may be due to acid reflux..
